We were staying at the Mill's B&B when the owner offered us a tour of the Mill itself. He started the wheel working specially and took us through the whole process from the water inlet to the ground flour. We are a retired couple but I would judge this to be an excellent experience for all ages and imagine that... More

Had the tour of the Mill by the owner which was most interesting and informative. Fascinating history as well as producing something eco friendly and essential for everyday living. Lovely cream tea and cake to follow. Highly recommended.

We passed by, and noticing the sign decided to stop. We were very glad we did - even our teenagers said they found it very interesting! There is plenty of parking and the owners are very friendly. The tour of the mill is interesting and the miller carefully explains everything and tried to pitch to the younger children in our... More

Burcott Mill is a wonderfully preserved 19th century water mill. It's great to be guided around is workings by the current owner and miller. The whole tour takes about 45 minutes and is extremely interesting throughout. There are good photographic opportunities during the tour. It's good to sample the tea and cakes at the end of the tour as well.

Very interesting tour of the mill included in our stay in the bed and breakfast, if you've not seen a work mill this is an excellent chance to see a bit of working history.

Visited 'Burcott Mill' today with my husband, brother-in-law, mother-in-law, and my three sons (aged 8 & 5 years and 16months). I phoned before visiting and found that they were very helpful and friendly. Upon arrival we discovered that they were very accommodating and went out of their way to ensure we received the full experience. The chap was very friendly... More

Very interesting place to visit , where you can see flour being milled in the old way & then buy some to take away with you. Outside there are small animals to pet & you can buy a cuppa. Room for kids to run around.

Only small, but interesting to learn about the history of the Mill and also how it works and how the flour is produced. Also have opportunity to buy flour and freshly baked bread if you're lucky
